Call for Panel Papers: Migrant Children’s Cultures and the Culture of Migrant Childhoods

“Children and Youth in a Changing World”
2012 Inter-congress of International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES)
Bhubaneswar, India during November 26-30, 2012

Immigrant children’s cultures have been re-created across time periods and through various spatial, racial, institutional, and ideological practices. These cultures offer insight into the diverse cultures of children and their societies, and function as sites for analyzing constructions of childhoods. This panel looks at the cultures of migrant children, and engages with the conceptions, contestations, and negotiations of immigrant childhood cultures in their varied possibilities: production, consumption, performance, and embodiment. Migrant children employ various urban spaces, services for their support, along with institutional and familial ideologies, to further deploy new cultural practices in popular culture, food, dress, language, peer groups, writings, and other material, spatial, and literary forms. This panel aims to look at the ways in which migration gives rise to diverse childhood cultures – lived and ideological – across international immigration movements of children and youth. Diverse approaches and methods of exploration of these cultures, in varied texts, and across historical time periods and regions, are especially welcome on this panel.

Please send a 300 word abstract by August 28, 2011 to Anandini Dar: anandini@camden.rutgers.edu.
